Ek Commando Knives, famous since 1941, have been battle proven in WWII, Korea, Vietnam,
the Gulf War, Afghanistan and Iraq. We are proud to be the living link continuing the
tradition that dates back to the days of John Ek, himself, in 1941.
John once said: "A good knife can save a life." And he backed it up by making good knives.
Ek knives have gotten even better over the years, which you can discover for yourself.
Our motto is "Constant Improvement", using the best materials and precision craftsmanship.

Fairbairn-Sykes MkII™. The Fairbairn-Sykes is probably the most-revered military fighting knife of all time, made famous in World War II by the British Commandos, the U.S. Army Rangers, the SAS, SOE and Allied combat troops in all theaters of operations.

Now for the first time since 1941 comes the updated, improved, American version, the F-S Mk II™. The full-tang design, rugged blade and forward-curving solid brass crossguard overcome the weaknesses of the original, but the double-edge and the curvaceous grip are unmistakably F-S all the way. With its F-S and Ek heritage, the F-S MkII™ is an immediate classic. This is the Official Knife of the U.S. Army Ranger Association.

The Marine Raider Stiletto MkII™

Officially Authorized by the U.S. Marine Raider Association. The spirit and legacy of the WWII original, updated with the best materials and strongest design. As with the original, the "USMC" scroll is etched on blade. Battle-worthy; full-tang design for maximum strength. The first of these knives was presented by the U.S. Marine Raider Association to Raider Hall at Quantico MCB, where it is on permanent display. Shortly thereafter, the Raiders presented one to MARSOC (Marine Special Operations Command), the modern-day counterpart of the Raiders, and it, too, is on permanent display at their Headquarters at Camp Lejeune.

The Marine Raider/MCMAP Knife

The Marine Raider/Marine Corps Martial Arts Program (MCMAP) Knife is officially authorized by the U.S. Marine Raider Association and keeps alive the spiritual bond between the WWII Raider Marines and the MCMAP-trained U.S. Marines of today. Four times a year, MCMAP presents one of these knives to an outstanding Black Belt/Instructor in each graduating class.

MCMAP training is based on many of the close-quarter fighting techniques originally taught by and to the Marine Raiders. A Marine Raider/MCMAP Knife is on permanent display at Raider Hall, Quantico MCB – the home of MCMAP.

Inspired by the Marine Raider Stiletto of World War II fame, its business end is a similar, double-edge, razor-sharp blade – of the highest quality, high carbon, surgical, stainless steel. The sturdy crossguard is solid brass. The grip is wrapped with military-spec parachute cord, inspired by the traditional, wrapped grip of the sword of the ancient Samurai warrior, an icon of the martial arts. The cord wrapping and sheath are black, the traditional color of the highest order, or "belt", of fighting skill, the Black Belt.
